We know that most of the time, your beau hasn’t put much thought into his wedding band. Some dudes are completely uninterested in rings, and most are just unaware of the options available. There are all kinds, from the guy who’s eager to discuss each decision along the way, to the disengaged dude sitting in the corner with folded arms, staring off into space. Good news! We are here to help engage your groom-to-be and involve him in his very own ring selection!
So what’s the best metal for men’s wedding bands?
Well, it depends on the guy. Does he want precious or contemporary metal? Is he more interested in rarity and value or durability? Which band profile does he want? Engraving? Finishes? Get to know your guy, then walk him through the process to create his personalized band.
Each ring comes with its own pros and cons. Determining the best metal for your man's wedding bands starts with understanding his lifestyle. Consider what he does for a living. For example, some companies require their employees to wear tungsten bands because of the metal’s potential for fracturing under extreme pressure. Also, if working with electricity, he may want to steer clear of metals that have conductive properties, opting for a ceramic or stainless steel instead.
What does he do in his spare time? If he works on cars, steer him away from soft, precious metals like gold and silver and go for a stronger metal that is resistant to scratching. A swimmer may need a metal that can withstand harsh chemicals, like chlorine. Precious metals may be a strong fit for a coin collector who treasures value and rarity. An avid hunter should avoid a band with a bright polished finish, which could reflect sunlight and scare away the game.
His wedding band is not only an expression of marital commitment but also an expression of himself. Urge your guy to choose a band that reflects his style. He may choose a classic band profile like half-round or comfort-fit, or he may prefer a more modern look like two-tone or hand-engraved. If he’s interested in personalizing his precious metal band, consider engraving the band for a unique touch. He may choose to add a special message or scripture verse in a brawny font or even in his or your own custom handwriting.
